Hi there, Thursday is here again so that means a new challenge over at Rainbow Lady's Challenge blog and this week our theme is 'USE A CD' and we are sponsored by Amber Ink. The DT were lucky enough to be able to use some gorgeous stamps from Amber Ink for our projects this week. I've used this sassy young lady chatting on the phone, I really love this image, she is so gorgeous and its great to see a girl who's a bit cuddly lol. As soon as I saw her I could see her chatting on the phone to her friend, telling her all about her gorgeous new engagement ring!!
I've coloured the image with promarkers and added some lime stickles to her engagement ring with a dot of glossy accents over the top, its really sparkly IRL but hasn't shown up on the pic too well. The cushion she is leaning on is paper pieced, using a bp from a Debbi Moore's evergreen Cd (a freebie with this months magazine from Debbi Moore Crafts) and then I fussy cut the whole image (it took ages I can tell you lol)
The bps are also from the same cd, printed on pearlescent paper, I love these papers and they look scrummy printed out but they are a bit camera shy lol. I've stamped a swirly border around the main bp with a stamp from HOTP and also stamped and embossed a chandelier. The other cushions are made using stamps from Amber Inks on the same bp, overstamped with a background stamp from Elusive Images. I've added a green/black ribbon along the top of the card to finish off.
